Update your System Specifications with Speccy, and then copy this information into your System Specifications: Go to your UserCP, and then select Edit System Spec in the left pane. Copy the information from Speccy into the required fields. These System Specifications will then follow your every post.

Just had a BSOD called ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY
For some reason it doesn't show up in BSOD Viewer or crash dumps.
I have now updated my system specs in my usercp as requested and I have the chipset drivers installed already.

Bugcheck 0XFC, usually caused by a device driver.

Please upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

Here is the MSINFO32.
Attachment 264757

I also did a test that my friend gave me to do. Little program called HD_Speed
This is a screenshot of the graph about 10 minutes in. The pink line denotes the average speed, the red line is the current speed.
Does it look irregular to you? Or is it simply acting how it should. Didn't have any programs open, just background processes.

Can you update AMD SATA Controller (AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver) from http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx?

Also test Seagate ST325082 0AS. UseSeatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download. Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.

Post a screenshot of your HDD using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World.

It's not letting me install the SATA controller drivers because it says I have a better version. How would I do this?
Here are the screenshots of CrystalDisk:

C drive (primary OS hdd). It has a small partition that I was using to store recorded video game footage, previously it was used to store windows 7 for dual boot with windows 8 before I got rid of it:

F drive (secondary) empty at the moment but used to use to store music and games.

The disc seems to be OK. So it is not the problem of the physical disc itself. Still take the seatools test.

Possibly you have got amd_sata.sys installed via a windows update. So it is stating it. I haven't checked the date of the installed driver, as there was no crash dump.

Anyway, the BSOD stop 0xFC ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY causes by a device driver usually. You may enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Did the SeaTools scan as requested and it passed on both drives.

OK, so it is a fulproof that the HDD is not in fault at all. Now we have to see what driver verifier finds. So go for it? Dont select any driver provided by "microsoft" and "unknown". Let the system crash for a couple of times.

We are minimizing alternative possibilities now. Two (RAM and HDD) are excluded from the suspects list already.

BTW, your windows license is retail or OEM?

My license is retail. I'm running the driver verifier now. I'll keep it going and go about my business. I'll get back to you guys after a few crashes to give you the results.

Thanks so much for the assistance so far, I'm conscious of the fact that this has been going on for a while and I'm thankful for the ongoing assistance.
